Men And Angels



Man, indeed, describes more than he explains; while the angelic spirit sees and understands. Man judges nature in relation to itself; the angelic spirit judges it in relation to heaven. In short, to the spirits everything speaks. —HONORÉ DE BALZAC Artist James C. Christensen’s portrayals of angels, including Cecelia, Sleeper Lost in Dreams and throughout his Saints and Angels series, inspire us to reflect on the angels among us.The high contrast in Men and Angels reminds the viewer that sometimes our mortal world is dark compared to the world of angels.The image also reveals how a visitor can bring a shining light, leading us out of the darkness.

Men And Angels: The Art Of James C. Christensen



A very few people will own one of only 150 Men and Angels Collector’s Editions. This autographed book comes slipcased in rich burgundy bookcloth with a gold-stamped, leather label, lined in acid-free paper and is accompanied by Little Wings, an original stone lithograph created by artist James C. Christensen especially for the Men and Angels Collectors Edition.

The title page of each volume is signed by both the author and artist and is consecutively numbered to match the stone litho. The discerning collector will treasure the book and lithograph package from this extremely limited edition.



Little Wings

Each of heaven’s angels has her own unique set of wings. Some are grand and gleam in the sunlight reflected off the clouds; some are sleek and graceful; some are a riot of peacock colors. This little angel, new to her own heavenly gifts, seems a bit impatient with the speed of their growth. When will she be able to fly like the others, dancing in the light of heaven? This original stone lithograph was drawn by James C. Christensen, and produced by his long-time collaborator, Master Printer Wayne Kimball. The softly curling lines of Christensen’s impatient angel spring to life with Kimball’s exquisite lithography.

Ministry Of Angels, The Promise Of The Scriptures



The things that we choose emulate who we are; defining the environment we surround ourselves with. Out of all of the books in the library, this young man has chosen to open his heart and mind to the scriptures. The great truths that he absorbs fill his heart and mind to the extent that they become a part of him. The book is the focal point of the painting. It emanates light. The angels that surround him are representatives of truth and light, reminding us that so long as we engage in the scriptures we are protected. The young man is visually unaware of his guardians yet the presence of their love and power of protection settles upon him like armor. After reading long into the evening hours, drinking from the fountains of living water, he is assured that the Holy Ghost can offer him knowledge in a quiet place.

Parable: The Prodigal Son (Modern)



Arguably the most well known of the Savior's parables, in the Prodigal Son a father has two sons. The younger leaves home and takes his inheritance spending it on "riotous living." Having spent all, this wayward son takes a job feeding the swine and filled his belly with the food intended for the pigs. The parable says that "when he came to himself," the younger son determined to return to his father and ask that he be allowed to return as a hired servant. Upon seeing him return, the father took him back - not as a servant, but again as his son. The elder brother, seeing his father's excitement, protested that he had stayed and done as he should. Why was their no rejoicing over his faithfulness? The father replied, "Thou are ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry... for thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found." - Luke 15:32

This painting comes from the account of a friend of ours whose son was a drug addict for almost fifteen years. One morning, this faithful father received a call from a friend of his son saying that his son was not moving. As a bishop, he was up early and dressed for his Sunday morning meetings. He immediately drove to his son, scooped him off that drug house floor, and took him to the hospital before returning to conduct Sunday services. He said nothing to his congregation, just did his best to help them. Then, returned to the hospital to sit with his son. I include a green vine on this father's tie to remind us that even in our darkest hours there is a hope of new life. Today, that son has returned to the fold and works in a youth ministry helping teens. He explained that it was the love of his parents that brought him home.

Paris Angel



I had my daughter Paris stand in this dress and twirl as I took rapid shots of her. This was the perfect pose for the painting because I wanted to capture free motion, which gives the angel a sense of freedom and a love of life, sort of a childish innocence.

Passage By Faith



“I have used a voyage on a river as a metaphor for the journey of life in many of my paintings,” says James C. Christensen on "Passage by Faith." “Sometimes we travel alone, sometimes with friends and family and often with a mixed group of strangers, human and not so. But the journey is inevitable, and our task is to make the best of the ever-changing voyage. We don’t always control the river, but we often have choices that determine what will happen next on our odyssey.

“The man in the boat is one I call the Everyman. His hump identifies him as an imperfect being, a symbol of human imperfections. Some are physical, others are of personality or character, but none of us is perfect. The world is crumbling a bit around our Everyman in his boat but he doesn’t stop moving forward or become distracted by things that might pull him off course. The fish—the symbol of wisdom and magic—follows behind him whispering encouragement and the candle in front of him represents his faith that lights his way. Will he avoid rough waters and the certain challenges of life’s journey? I think he is prepared to make good choices and has the faith to know he will be guided through the difficulties to come. For the moment, he rows.”

Some of Christensen’s most popular works are the ones inspired by his beliefs and "Passage by Faith" is the title for and the cover art of a new book published by Deseret Book. This collection explores the spiritual and scriptural connections found in Christensen’s work. The Greenwich Workshop has created both canvas and paper Fine Art Editions "Passage by Faith," either the perfect choice to bring some inspiration for the soul to any room in the need for a little visual and spiritual lift.

Prayer



For some time now I have challenged myself to capture "letters" hidden in the world around us. Our customers have enjoyed creating personalized pieces of art from our extensive collection of photographs.

For the first time, we are offering something with even more meaning. I have managed to create words using beautiful photographs taken of temples and temple grounds.

Saint Apollonia



Once upon a time, the boundless imagination of master storyteller James C. Christensen created a series of paintings under the guise of an obscure (and fictitious) 15th century Flemish painter. This enigmatic collection became known as “Saints and Angels” for its similarities to the devotional art of that era, as well as its portrayals of largely forgotten Christian saints. Greenwich Workshop fine art collectors have contributed to the sell-out of previous limited editions from Saints and Angels including Isabella, Angel with Epaulet and Madonna with Two Angels.



St. Apollonia is the perfect complement to any of the releases from this series of elegant yet powerful women or a lovely and affordable start to a James C. Christensen collection of art for your home. Apollonia is the patron saint of dentists and those suffering toothaches. When heathens in Alexandria revolted against the Christians in 249, Apollonia was beaten and her teeth were pulled because she would not recant her Christian beliefs.Your authorized Greenwich Workshop fine art dealer can make it possible for St. Apollonia to grace your home this holiday season and beyond.

Saint With White Sleeves



Behold the latest discovery from James C. Christensen’s Saints and Angels collection, a series he attributes to his alter-ego, an obscure Flemish painter known as The Master of the Enoch Altarpiece. Previous Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Limited Editions from the Saints and Angels collection include Isabella and The Enoch Altarpiece. The subject of Saint with White Sleeves does not appear to be a specific saint, and the model for this striking portrait was likely one of the Master’s patrons. It was customary at the time for the wealthy to request that their portraits incorporate characteristics of saints or angels. In Saint with White Sleeves, the halo suggests a saint, yet the white sleeves hint at angel’s wings.
